#18: Put Me In, Coach

One of my favorite music videos is "Centerfield" by John Fogerty, his terrific salute to baseball. And the video is nothing but old time clips of the stars from mostly the '30s, '40s and '50s. And all in glorious black and white as well.

I also dedicate this clip to the late Bobby Thomson, who passed away on Monday night at the age of 86. He is in this video of course, and despite hitting what many feel is the greatest home run in baseball history, he was always a gentleman to all who knew him. "The Staten Island Scot" will be missed.

Here's number 18. Enjoy.
